Corrective Exercise

Corrective Exercise

The multidisciplinary team at South Coast Sports Medicine have the knowledge and skills to safely conduct postural assessments and design corrective exercise programs that will alleviate pain caused by common musculoskeletal imbalances. These imbalances often lead to discomfort, pain and injury and can exacerbate pre-existing conditions. The team have a thorough understanding of muscles, movement and biomechanics causing a specific dysfunction.

Corrective exercises are an important part of reducing aches and pains, as well as reaching fitness objectives. Generic gym programs or generic personal training does not usually take into account each individual’s unique combination of movement habits and postural imbalances.

The musculoskeletal system is under continual stress to dissipate impact through the body from gravity and ground reaction forces (Chasan, 2002). When the body is out of alignment, other areas must compensate to deal with the ever-present forces of nature. Compensation within the body can lead to overuse of muscles and soft-tissue structures causing pain and imbalances (American Council on Exercise, 2010).

Eventually, these compensation patterns may manifest in clients as problems such as Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, patellofemoral syndrome, runner’s knee, hip bursitis or dysplasia, spinal disc degeneration, rotator cuff tendonitis and/or tension headaches (Petty and Moore, 2001).

Our team is trained in assessing musculoskeletal imbalances and designing a corrective exercise program to get a body back into alignment, reducing the incidence of various symptoms. We recommend you seeing a Sports Doctor first for a diagnosis of your symptoms, and they will communicate closely with the other members of the team (physiotherapist, exercise physiologist, personal trainers) to develop a individual treatment plan for you.

Our Netball guru and Physio extraordinaire, Stacey, has come up with three exercises for our netball rookie, Jake, to practice to prevent injuries to knees and ankles:

Dynamic pelvis stability using a fit ball against a wall to do a single leg squat.

Match simulation exercises like a safe landing after a quick, unprompted 90 degree turn.

And the most brutal, a jump and a push from a teammate to simulate the mid air bumps that “non-contact” sports like netball are renowned for! Here, we’re aiming for a safe landing without knees falling in.

A great online resource for netballers is knee.netball.com.au but nothing beats a program tailored just for you by our Accredited Exercise Physiologists
